Full text
13. In the case of an investigation, the Public Protector may, if the Public Protector considers it appropriate, inform the highest ranking administrative official of the public body concerned or, if warranted by the circumstances, the minister responsible for that body that an investigation is being conducted and advise him or her of its subject-matter.
In the case of a public body referred to in paragraph 9 of section 2, the Public Protector may, if the Public Protector deems it appropriate, inform the Minister of Families. The Public Protector may also, in the case of a public body, other than a local municipality, referred to in paragraph 9.1 of section 2, inform any local municipality having ties with that body if the Public Protector deems it appropriate.
For the purposes of this Act, the highest ranking administrative official is the official responsible for the day-to-day management of the public body, such as the deputy minister, the chair or the director general. However, in the case of a public body referred to in paragraph 5 of section 2, the highest ranking administrative official is the board of directors or, in the case of a school board, the council of commissioners. Such a board or council may delegate to the director general all or part of the functions conferred on the highest ranking administrative official.
